Dyneley House Surgery has offered patients’ facilities to book appointments and order their repeat prescriptions ‘on-line’ since 2011.
From 1 April, we are able to offer patients the facility to view information from their medical record.
Please ask at Reception about the process of registering to be able to access this facility.
We welcome your feedback and would be really pleased if you can spare a few minutes to complete the new NHS Friends & Family Test. You can find the survey in the 'Have your say' section on the homepage of the website.
From the 1 April 2015, under the terms and conditions of the General Medical Services Contract, the Practice is required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all registered patients.
If you wish to know who your allocated GP is, or have a preference as to which GP you are allocated, please contact Reception.
These new arrangements do not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any GP at the Practice as patients have always been able to.
From April 2016, all doctors’ practices are required to declare the mean earnings (average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients.
The average pay for GPs working in Dyneley House Surgery in the last financial year was £67,250 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 2 full time GPs, 8 part time GPs and 0 locum GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.”
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the Practice are publicised and the required disclosure is shown above. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the Practice and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
You can find out more by reading this guide in easy words and pictures. You can also watch a video in British Sign Language (BSL) or listen to an audio recording.
We are currently working towards the standard. The first thing we need to do is identify those people with information and communication needs. Please help us to do this.
Let us know if you have a disability, impairment or sensory loss, and the kind of information and communication support that you need.
We will record this on your medical records. This will help us to be prepared the next time you use our services. Please ask a member of the Practice Team if you need any further information or assistance.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic and Your Information
The ICO recognises the unprecedented challenges the NHS and other health professionals are facing during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The ICO also recognise that 'Public bodies may require additional collection and sharing of personal data to protect against serious threats to public health.' The Government have also taken action in respect of this and on 20th March 2020 the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care issued a Notice under Regulation 3(4) of The Health Service (Control of Patient Information) Regulations 2002 requiring organisations such as GP Practices to use your information to help GP Practices and other healthcare organisations to respond to and deal with the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to look after your healthcare needs during this difficult time, we may urgently need to share your personal information, including medical records, with clinical and non clinical staff who belong to organisations that are permitted to use your information and need to use it to help deal with the Covid-19 pandemic. This could (amongst other measures) consist of either treating you or a member of your family and enable us and other healthcare organisations to monitor the disease, assess risk and manage the spread of the disease.
Please be assured that we will only share information and health data that is necessary to meet yours and public healthcare needs. The Secretary of State for Health and Social Care has also stated that these measures are temporary and will expire on 30th September 2020 unless a further extension is required. Any further extension will be will be provided in writing and we will communicate the same to you.
Please also note that the data protection and electronic communication laws do not stop us from sending public health messages to you, either by phone, text or email as these messages are not direct marketing.

How the NHS and care services use your information
Dyneley House Surgery is one of many organisations working in the health and care system to improve care for patients and the public.
Whenever you use a health or care service, such as attending Accident & Emergency (A & E) or using Community Care services, important information about you is collected in a patient record for that service. Collecting this information helps to ensure you get the best possible care and treatment.
The information collected about you when you use these services can also be used and provided to other organisations for purposes beyond your individual care, for instance to help with:
This may only take place when there is a clear legal basis to use this information. All these uses help to provide better health and care for you, your family and future generations. Confidential patient information about your health and care is only used like this where allowed by law.
Most of the time, anonymised data is used for research and planning so that you cannot be identified in which case your confidential patient information isn’t needed.
You have a choice about whether you want your confidential patient information to be used in this way. If you are happy with this use of information you do not need to do anything. If you do choose to opt out your confidential patient information will still be used to support your individual care.

You can change your mind about your choice at any time.
Data being used or shared for purposes beyond individual care does not include your data being shared with insurance companies or used for marketing purposes and data would only be used in this way with your specific agreement.
Health and care organisations have until 2020 to put systems and processes in place so they can be compliant with the national data opt-out and apply your choice to any confidential patient information they use or share for purposes beyond your individual care.
